Adults

We value opportunities for adults to be intentional about their faith journey.
Both the new Christian and the most seasoned follower of Jesus can find a place to grow together, support one another, and be transformed in Christ.

We’d love to have you join us for any of our weekly events or small groups. You’ll find something for every stage of life. We also offer a variety of special events throughout the year to help you build your relationship with God and one another — and to help you put your faith into action!

ADULT MINISTRY

Programs

Our mission is to help men grow their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In order to accomplish this, we offer men opportunities for small group study, fellowship, and service. We certainly hope you will consider checking us out. 

We call our Women’s Ministry “SOS” — Sisters of Strength — because we see women strengthened in their faith through fellowship and study together. We offer a variety of opportunities for women to connect with God, with one another, and to put their faith into action. Some of our activities are fun and light hearted, while others are more spiritually enriching. We’d love to have you join us!

 Older adults (age 55+) are an active and vital part of our ministry at Hixson UMC. In addition to participating in the overall life of the congregation, our older adults gather regularly for fellowship and Christian study. We have several Sunday School classes, as well as a dedicated Older Adult Group at Hixson UMC.

Additionally, older adults are active in all areas of Sunday worship — including choirs, children’s worship, and as ushers and lay readers. They can also be spotted delivering flowers from the worship service to hospitals and nursing homes in the area; and many are part of the trained lay visitation teams that visit our sick in the hospitals. They also are involved in mission teams, help with youth activities, and lead prayer groups and Bible Studies.

One of the most important things we will ever do is tend to our family. Our families are far more important than our occupation, service, and personal ambition. As much as parents are tempted to think otherwise, no one has more influence on the life of a child than a parent. At Hixson UMC, we are committed to supporting families in everything we do! We know that when families work in tandem with the faith community to raise their children, they increase their parenting capacity exponentially.
